New Orleans Pharmacy Museum


This museum takes you back to a time when bloodletting, leeches, snake oil, and voodoo concoctions were all legitimate medical remedies. It’s housed in what was the home of early 19th–century druggist Louis J. Dufilho, the country’s first licensed pharmacist. Poke through the musty jars of powders and "magical" elixirs that line the shelves of the first floor’s recreated apothecary shop, then creak up the stairs for a peek at the historic—and rather painful looking—dental-care devices.
